The Summer Style Hack For Petites You Should Know

    Cool and comfortable!!

      Cool and comfortable indeed! Thank you for stopping by Sharon! xo Kelly

  2. While I am really glad to see petite clothing being featured, the dresses worn in this post would not work for a 74 year old like myself. It would be nice to see someone over 70 modeling petite clothing– perhaps a guest contributor????

      Hi Paula! Not every post will resonate with everyone. I’m 63 and I’m fairly certain some of my fashion choices aren’t up your alley either. And I will mention that Kelly shared a style hack applicable to all petites regardless of age.

      Our goal here at Style at a Certain Age is to share fashion, food, skincare, beauty, health & wellness, and more for our 40+ demographic – women of a certain age. I’m dedicated to having each decade represented along with a beauty editor and a petite. Rome wasn’t built in a day so stay tuned! We have exciting things coming your way in the next weeks and months.

    Thank you for this great idea for petites! My sister is a petite and when I wear a summer dress she always says “why can’t I wear something like that.” Now she has several options.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hello Roberta! Summer dresses are great for petites! There really are a lot of options out there, I am happy to share some great find with you and your sister! xo Kelly

  4. Carol says:

    Two fabulous choices for summer for a wide audience! I’m 76 and wear a similar black dress very often. It is a basic for travel and just around town. The cute spaghetti strap dress probably wouldn’t work for me, but is a wonderful suggestion in any event. Love your posts, Kelly! And your recipes!!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hello Carol, I absolutely love that black dress – and you’re right, it’s great for traveling. Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I am so happy you are enjoying the recipes too! xo Kelly

    Kelly, I really enjoyed this post, especially the first spaghetti strap dress and espadrilles. I’m a petite and agree about empire waist, or usually having to purchase something specifically made for us “p”s …
    Thanks, and have a great weekend!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hey there, Carolina Girl! Empire waist is such an easy style for us petites to get away with in regular sizing. I am happy you enjoyed today’s pot – thank you so much for stopping by today! xo Kelly

    The first dress is SO cute! Adorable on you Kelly.

  7. Connie Morgan says:

    I love the Savannah tote! Is there a store I could call to order one?
    Thank you,

    Kelly, these midi-to-maxi dresses look great on you. I have a short torso but long legs, and have been doing this hack for a while now.
    I also find that regular size long crops fit me like ankle pants, while regular 30-31 inch inseam pants are way too long. So I’ve become a big fan of these. I hardly ever wear long pants anymore, hence, no more alterations!
    Happpy summer.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Eva, I often use your pants hack too. Usually the regular crop pants fit me like ankle pants. It works so well I can’t remember the last time I got a pair of pants hemmed! Thanks so much for stopping by! xo Kelly
